1. In approximately 500 words or less, please provide a general description of your business.  Please refer to your mission and vision.

Summit Achievement is a licensed treatment center whose mission is to provide nurturing and compassionate treatment programs for adolescents.  We provide teens and their families with opportunities for significant personal growth—through unique programs which combine psychotherapy, outdoor experiences, and classroom academics.  The vision of Summit is a supportive community that promotes positive change for adolescents and their families through programs based on compassion, honesty, and integrity. 

Summit  Achievement is located in the Western Maine mountains.  We provides assessment, treatment and therapy to teens aged 13 to 20.  The program length is 6 to 8 weeks.  Students attend school 3 days each week and participate in outdoor expeditions for 4 days each week.  As a recognized outdoor behavioral healthcare facility, Summit utilizes individual therapy, group therapy, adventure therapy, and challenging classroom academics to promote change in young persons who are experiencing poor classroom performance, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and/or family conflict.  Utilizing a multi-systemic therapeutic approach, each student works with an individual therapist who develops treatment planning and psychotherapy.  Parents and students participate in a conference call each week with his/her therapist to promote family unity and open lines of communication.  Now in its 14 year of year round operation, Summit has provided positive change to thousands of families.

2.  Specifically tell us who you believe to be your most immediate competitors, what makes you different, who should prefer you to the competitors and why.

Summits competitors are programs that work with “softer” kids who are not so oppositional as to require an escort service.  Our most immediate competitor is Sol Treks.  Summit has a dynamic residential center where students spend a portion of each week.  This allows us to provide challenging classroom academic and quality medical treatment that traditional wilderness programs lack.  The program is conducive to families who would prefer their child attend a traditional boarding or day school.  Our proximity and relationship to these schools allows us to have students interview while enrolled at Summit.  The program is a strong advocate for student’s acceptance should he/she student demonstrate growth and commitment.
